       An update that solves one vulnerability and has one errata
       is now available.
       This update for calamares fixes the following issues:
       - Launch with "pkexec calamares" in openSUSE Tumbleweed, but launch with
         "xdg-su -c calamares" in openSUSE Leap 15.
       Update to Calamares 3.2.15:
       - "displaymanager" module now treats "sysconfig" as a regular entry in the
         "displaymanagers" list, and the "sysconfigSetup" key is used as a
         shorthand to force only that entry in the list.
       - "machineid" module has been re-written in C++ and extended with a new
         configuration key to generate urandom pool data.
       - "unpackfs" now supports a special "sourcefs" value of file for copying
         single files (optionally with renaming) or directory trees to the target
       - "unpackfs" now support an "exclude" and "excludeFile" setting for
         excluding particular files or patters from unpacking.
       Update to Calamares 3.2.14:
       - "locale" module no longer recognizes the legacy GeoIP configuration.
         This has been deprecated since Calamares 3.2.8 and is now removed.
       - "packagechooser" module can now be custom-labeled in the overall
         progress (left-hand column).
       - "displaymanager" module now recognizes KDE Plasma 5.17.
       - "displaymanager" module now can handle Wayland sessions and can detect
         sessions from their .desktop files.
       - "unpackfs" now has special handling for sourcefs setting “file”.
       Update to Calamares 3.2.13.
